in europe. in europe, unemployment is still rising, approaching 12% in the euro area. steadily hovered around 8%. no relief from that and no reasonable source of relief. we double or triple those numbers and again, nothing to write home about, long-term unemployment, people disconnecting from the labor market and problems with migration issues and problems with the delivery of public services precisely because of that. we are saying go green because we are on a collision course with nature. because at the rate where we are going, we are going to have a poor degree of success by the end of the century. we are talking about improbable scenarios, but we are on a course and have not done very much about it. the biodiversity, the air, the waste, these things continue to be challenges. because of the crisis, we have been distracted and there are some institutional issues take away a little bit of obsolete. democracy and governance issues, the g8 and g20 have not been mentioned here. we have to improve international cooperation to get home. yesterday we wrote a panel about what to do in 2013.

can try. i'm trying to remember. i remember the 5-year number was 259, and then the 10-euros 487. about 60 was throughout the more disciplined use of resources. trying to remember, but i don't for sure what portion. 20%. probably roughly the same, but i don't frankly remember. i should, but i don't remember the number. so, you know, you start to go from sequestration, but let me try to be helpful. under the law before the new year's day legislation there was a sequestration about 547 in something called the national defence function where about 95 percent of that. our share was about 52. also a cap in the budget control act, and there was a sequestration associated with that. in the prior law we thought it would be 10 billion. the total is 62. when nothing the total would be more like 45. i hope he will take those numbers as rough, roughly 9%. and smaller because they change the law and a change some of the caps and reduced the size of the sequestration negotiation, the taxpayer relief act. is that clear? >> sorry. >> i'm going to take one more prerogative of the chair and ask on
